COVID-19 Discussion Series: Eps. 1 – Intro panel on challenges and solutions
The first episode of our Discussion Series: Big data solutions to COVID-19 & food security, brought together experts to give an overview of the challenges presented by COVID-19 and the opportunities big data solutions present.
As we begin recovering and (re)building resilient food systems, we must leverage the power of big data to examine concepts of resilience and inform our understanding of how digital dynamism enables adaptive food systems in the face of shocks, and, in the longer term, addresses systemic issues in agriculture that have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis.
This first episode introduces the theme of the discussion series, giving a general overview of the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and what opportunities big data solutions present.
